Four Sir Speedy Franchise Outlets Open in Mexico
Sir Speedy Inc., a business printing franchiser, said it has established four Sir Speedy printing centers in Mexico under a franchise agreement with a Monterrey, Mexico, company.
“We believe the results of economic reform taking place in Mexico today offer us an excellent opportunity to expand our services to businesses throughout Mexico,” said Don Lowe, president and chief executive of Sir Speedy, which has 875 franchise outlets in the United States and abroad.
The Mexican franchisee, Quick Printing de Mexico SA de CV, is jointly owned by Mauricio Gonzalez, who operates a copier and fax machine dealership in Mexico, and Ricardo Kane, Quick Printing’s president. The company plans to open 50 printing centers throughout Mexico by 1996, Lowe said.
He added that the Mexican franchisee has already converted four existing copying centers in Monterrey into Sir Speedy outlets.
The Laguna Hills franchiser said it also signed recent agreements with Arnaud Torres, a Brazilian publisher, to establish 50 printing stores in Brazil by 1994; and with Imprentas Rapidas SA, a business printer in Bogota, Colombia, to establish 25 printing stores in Colombia by 1995.
Another Orange County printing company, American Speedy Printing Centers Inc. in Anaheim, said Monday that it is negotiating with several Mexican companies to establish a printing franchise in Mexico next year. It has about 800 franchise stores in the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe.
